Transpose:
[Intro]
F Em Now I lay me down to sleep
Am C I pray the Lord, my soul to keep
F Em If I shall die before I wake
Am CI pray the Lord, my soul to take
[Chorus]
F Em AmI, I keep a record of the wreckage of my life
C FI gotta recognize the weapon in my mind
Em AmThey talk shit, but I love it every time
CAnd I realize
[Verse 1]
N.C. AmI've tasted blood and it is sweet
C FI've had the rug pulled beneath my feet
Em AmI've trusted lies and trusted men
C N.C. FBroke down and put myself back together again
EmStared in the mirror and punched it to shatters
Am CCollected the pieces and picked out a dagger
F EmI've pinched my skin in between my two fingers
N.C.And wished I could cut some parts off with some scissors
[Pre-Chorus]
F EmCome on little lady, give us a smile
Am CNo, I ain't got nothin' to smile about
F EmI got no one to smile for, I waited a while for
Am N.C.A moment to say I don't owe you a Goddamn thing
[Chorus]
F Em AmI, I keep a record of the wreckage of my life
C FI gotta recognize the weapon in my mind
Em AmThey talk shit, but I love it every time
CAnd I realize
[Post-Chorus]
F Em Am CI'm no sweet dream but I'm a hell of a knife
F Em Am CThat I'm no sweet dream, but I'm a hell of a knife
[Verse 2]
F Em Am No, I won't smile, but I'll show you my teeth
C FAnd I'ma let you speak if you just let me breathe
Em AmI've been polite, but won't be caught dead
C N.C. FLettin' a man tell me what I should do in my bed
EmKeep my exes in check in my basement
Am C'Cause kindness is weakness, or worse, you're complacent
F EmI could play nice or I could be a bully
N.C.I'm tired and angry, but somebody should be
[Pre-Chorus]
F EmCome on little lady, give us a smile
Am CNo, I ain't got nothin' to smile about
F EmI got no one to smile for, I waited a while for
Am N.C.A moment to say I don't owe you a Goddamn thing
[Chorus]
F Em AmI, I keep a record of the wreckage of my life
C FI gotta recognize the weapon in my mind
Em AmThey talk shit, but I love it every time
CAnd I realize
F Em AmI, I keep a record of the wreckage of my life
C FI gotta recognize the weapon in my mind
Em AmThey talk shit, but I love it every time
CAnd I realize
[Bridge]
F Em Am CSomeone like me can be a real nightmare, completely aware
F Em Am CBut I'd rather be a real nightmare, than die unaware, yeah
F Em Am CSomeone like me can be a real nightmare, completely aware
F Em Am N.C.But I'm glad to be a real nightmare, so save me your prayers
[Chorus]
F Em AmI, I keep a record of the wreckage of my life
C FI gotta recognize the weapon in my mind
Em AmThey talk shit, but I love it every time
CAnd I realize
F Em AmI, I keep a record of the wreckage of my life
C FI gotta recognize the weapon in my mind
Em AmThey talk shit, but I love it every time
CAnd I realize
[Post-Chorus]
F Em Am CI'm no sweet dream but I'm a hell of a knife
F Em Am CThat I'm no sweet dream, but I'm a hell of a knife
